  1. We do have a TUA version. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiV8PXx1IzkAhWBmuAKHXwnBtsQjRx6BAgBEAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstrathconas.ca%2Fe-coy-ldsh-rc-puts-the-lav-tua-to-the-test%3Fmid%3D1039&psig=AOvVaw01G8NxJGB5HVmKiOHBYQUy&ust=1566226055866671
  2. I should also note that 1 Government rules say no sole source buying except for special conditions, this LAV purchase is not one of them 2. Election near, might be buying vote (no that never happens here), so may well fall through. In the end it may not go through, as we have a history with buying mil equipment in the country. Time will tell. We do need them though.

  4. Well ,having it on top, when I'm inside would cause issues if I need to read it, and never used a map board, I fold my map to the tactical area I'm working. Mapboards...I have seen this done in training, not so much in combat, bad habits might be hard to break.... Love to hear how you read it out side in combat when rounds, IED and other objects are flying around , maybe your combat was different, so we can agree that each has different experiences, and handle them in the way we were taught, and adapted to each situation. The outside of my AFV had frag marks, but your right, no worries about them , a map board would have protected me......... My life is owed to many things, having my map in front of me is not one of them, surrounded by armour is. I would say this is not the correct thread, and it seems confrontational, ill end it on my end, feel free to carry on.
  5. I was _trying but may have failed- to make that same point. We know there may be underlying issues, and hard to tell from a post. So congrads to your above debate argument , to clear up my view. No disrespect from my post was intended.
  6. You are correct, how ever, posting a reply (in this case) as why they don't agree, should carry the same "freedom" .Just because a opposing view is given doesn't make it a argument, or "fire" does it? Respect each view as posted, let go of the ego, post and enjoy each different view, you may learn a thing or two PS : And no, units are not always linked via comms to each other, this is a cruel myth by comms people that we as the end users were sold.....heheheh
  7. This group of people never stops impressing me, such a kind thought.
